Chicago Bears running back Tarik Cohen carried the ball nine times for 69 yards in the Bears 15-6 win over the Rams. The second-year speedster also caught four passes for 20 yards and now has 1,063 yards from scrimmage this season. Cohen is a game-breaker that can be lined up anywhere on the field and the Bears, this week, utilized him mostly in the backfield. Cohen ran hard for some big first downs and averaged 4.6 yards per carry. Cohen has emerged as a fantasy asset this season, totaling seven touchdowns (one passing, two rushing, four receiving) and has a new career-high in receptions with 63. Cohen will be out for revenge in Week 15 against a Packers team that held him to only 41 total yards in the first game of the season.
Chicago Bears RB Tarik Cohen ran for 69 yards on nine carries and hauled in all four of his targets for 20 yards in Week 14 versus the Los Angeles Rams.
Fantasy Spin: Cohen was the best offensive player on either side in this contest and seemingly the only player unaffected by the cold in Chicago. He did pretty much all of his damage in the first half, including an explosive 32-yard off-tackle run that set up the Bears' first field goal. Cohen took a back seat in the second half as Jordan Howard chewed up the clock. Cohen remains the superior play in fantasy moving forward and should be a solid RB2 again in Week 15 versus the Green Bay Packers.
Chicago Bears running back Tarik Cohen will try and stay hot against the Rams in chilly Chicago weather for Week 14. Cohen dominated last week with backup quarterback Chase Daniel under center, posting 189 total yards against the Giants. The speedster will go up against a Rams defense that is allowing the 12th fewest fantasy points to opposing backs this season but have allowed eight total touchdowns to the position since Week 8. The Rams have been fantastic at limiting running backs in the passing game this season but Cohen continues to find ways to catch passes in space for huge plays. Cohen is the preferred fantasy option over teammate Jordan Howard for Week 14 and should see plenty of targets in the game. Cohen will have FLEX appeal in most fantasy formats and has 974 all-purpose yards this season with seven total touchdowns (one passing, two rushing, four receiving).
Bears' RB Tarik Cohen scored an astounding 34.65 fantasy points in Sunday's Week 13 loss in New York Giants. Cohen ran for 30 yards and caught 12 passes for 156 yards with one touchdown.
Chicago Bears RB Tarik Cohen rushed eight times for 30 yards and caught 12 passes for 156 yards in a 30-27 loss to the New York Giants in Week 13. He also threw a one-yard touchdown pass.
Fantasy Spin: Cohen did it all in this one, and his ability to make an impact in the passing game gives him RB2 upside in PPR formats on a weekly basis.
Chicago Bears running back Tarik Cohen registered 30 yards on the ground and 12 receptions for 156 yards while throwing a touchdown pass in the Bears wild loss to the Giants 30-27 in overtime. Cohen was deadly all over the field in a variety ways with the ball in his hands. He even connected on a double reverse that resulted in Cohen passing to receiver Anthony Miller for a game-tying touchdown. This, by far, has been one of the best fantasy efforts of the season for the speedster. Cohen will have intriguing FLEX value next week against the Rams and the impending return of quarterback Mitch Trubisky.
Chicago's RB Tarik Cohen had 12 receptions for 156 yards but no touchdowns in Sunday's loss in New York Giants.
Chicago Bears running back Tarik Cohen carries plenty of upside heading into the team's Week 13 matchup against the Giants. Cohen has 788 yards from scrimmage this season with 47 receptions and six touchdowns for the surprising Bears. This week he will go up against a Giants defense that has allowed a running back to post a touchdown in every game they have played this season. The Giants have allowed 12 different running backs to post 10-plus fantasy points against them and eight of those players posted more than 15 points. The Bears will turn to backup quarterback Chase Daniel for the second straight game and the offense will need to get the ball into Cohen's game-breaking hands. Cohen is a better fantasy play than teammate Jordan Howard in Week 13 and the Bears should be able to design ways to get the speedster the ball in space. Cohen is a RB2/3 with tons of upside in Week 13.
Chicago Bears running back Tarik Cohen seven passes for 45 yards, including a 14-yard touchdown catch, in the Bears 23-16 win over the Lions. With injured quarterback Mitch Trubisky sidelined, the team turned to backup Chase Daniel to make plays. The Bears completely abandoned the running game to move the chains and Cohen added only 14 rushing yards in the game. Daniel and Cohen failed to connect on a fade route for a touchdown earlier in the game but scored on an almost identical route in the second half to briefly put the Bears up in the game. The fantasy value of the Bears offensive weapons will be tied to Trubisky moving forward.
Chicago Bears RB Tarik Cohen caught seven passes for 45 yards and one touchdown against the Detroit Lions in Week 12. He also rushed for 14 yards on three carries during the game.
Fantasy Spin: Cohen has received at least 10 touches in each of the last three games but is not putting up the type of numbers he was earlier in the season. He will have a good matchup next week and can be a flex option in point-per-reception leagues.
Chicago Bears running back Tarik Cohen will try and get his season back on track this Thursday against the Lions on Thanksgiving. Cohen has posted only 107 yards from scrimmage over his last three games and has been largely ineffective since taking a screen pass to the house for a 70-yard touchdown against the Jets in Week 8. Opposing defenses have been focusing on taking Cohen out of the Bears game plan and will face a Lions defense that is allowing the ninth most fantasy points to opposing backs. Cohen's presence on the field certainly opens up other offensive options for the Bears but it has been a while since he broke off a huge play. With quarterback Mitch Trubisky not practicing this week with a shoulder injury, Cohen will need to step up and has even thrown a pass or two in head coach Matt Nagy's offense. Cohen will be boom-or-bust in Week 12.
Chicago Bears running back Tarik Cohen carried the ball seven times for 27 yards while adding three receptions for 23 yards in the Bears Week 11 victory. Cohen got off to a strong start in the first quarter but a lost fumble slowed down his touches within the offense. Cohen has game-breaking speed and made some impressive runs on plays that seemed to go nowhere. But he has been unable to break loose for a dynamic play over the past few games and defenses appear to be focusing on taking the speedster out of the game. The Bears will play the Lions on Thanksgiving this Thursday, a team Cohen scored a rushing touchdown against in Week 10. He will be a boom-or-bust fantasy option in Week 12.
Chicago Bears RB Tarik Cohen carried seven times for 27 yards in Week 11 against the Minnesota Vikings and he added three receptions for 23 yards.
Fantasy Spin: It seemed like he had a lot more production, but he still averaged just 5.0 yards per touch. He'll look for better results against the Detroit Lions on Thanksgiving Day against a defense which yielded over 100 total scrimmage yards to Christian McCaffrey of the Panthers on Sunday.
Chicago Bears running back Tarik Cohen will look to shake out of his two-game slump against a ferocious Vikings defense in Week 11. Cohen has posted only 57 yards from scrimmage over his last two games after averaging 122 total yards a game in the four games previous to that. Cohen will go up against a Vikings defense that is allowing the ninth fewest fantasy points to the running back position this season. Running backs, at times, have been able to find moderate success in the passing game against Minnesota this season. But the Vikings defense has allowed only two players (Todd Gurley and Chris Ivory) to post more than 100 yards from scrimmage against them and Cohen will need a game-breaking play to post a solid fantasy statline. Cohen will be a boom-or-bust FLEX play in Week 11.
Chicago Bears RB Tarik Cohen rushed seven times for just 15 yards and a touchdown in the Week 10 game against the Detroit Lions and he added six receptions for 29 yards on seven targets.
Fantasy Spin: The yardage total wasn't giant, but he did score a touchdown and he helped out his PPR owners with a high volume of receptions. He remains a solid RB3 or flex option in PPR leagues heading into Week 11 against the Minnesota Vikings with less value in standard play.
Chicago Bears running back Tarik Cohen caught six passes for 29 yards and added 15 rushing yards in the Bears 34-22 win over the Lions. Cohen was unable to spring free for a huge play but was active early and added a rushing touchdown in the first half. Cohen missed a few plays after a taking a huge hit in the second quarter but returned to the game. The Bears passing game was on point from the first snap and the running game suffered because of it. But Cohen still found the end zone to salvage his fantasy day and will continue to be a boom-or-bust option heading into the teams game next week against the Vikings.
Chicago Bears running back Tarik Cohen will look to bounce back from a quiet performance in Week 9 this week against the Lions. Cohen's four-game touchdown streak was snapped last week as he mustered only 13 total yards on offense. He will have a favorable matchup in Week 10 against a Lions defense that is allowing the ninth most fantasy points to opposing running backs. Detroit has allowed four different running backs to post 10-plus fantasy points against them the past three weeks and Cohen is capable of scoring from anywhere on the field. Cohen has plenty of upside but the league may be adjusting to the Bears game-planning so it will be curious to see how Chicago will try to involve their dynamic speedster. Cohen has FLEX appeal but will be boom-or-bust in Week 10.
Chicago Bears RB Tarik Cohen rushed for five yards on six carries against the Buffalo Bills in Week 9. He also caught one pass for eight yards during the game.
Fantasy Spin: The offense did not need to do much to win the game, so Cohen was not used much against a solid Bills defense. He should be more involved next week against the Detroit Lions and can be at least a flex option for owners.
Chicago Bears offensive guard Kyle Long (foot) will be out for six to eight weeks after suffering a serious foot injury in the Week 8 win over the Jets, according to sources. Long is a key contributor to this solid offensive line, so the Bears running game will be negatively affected by Long's absence. Still, both running backs Jordan Howard and Tarik Cohen have a good matchup in Week 9 against the Bills.
Chicago Bears running back Tarik Cohen will look to extend his touchdown streak to five games in Week 9 against the Bills. During that span, Cohen has racked up 135 rushing yards with 23 receptions for 350 yards and four touchdowns. The elusive speedster has been a game-breaker in space and his touches have been increasing as the season moves along. He will go up against a Bills defense that is allowing the 10th most fantasy points to opposing running backs this season, including three touchdowns to the position over the last two weeks. Fantasy owners need to ride this hot streak with Cohen in Week 9 and should be in lineups, in most formats, this Sunday in Buffalo.
